"Budz House"

A project we first alerted you to last fall, now has an official trailer and, maybe surprisingly, is getting a theatrical release to boot!

Titled Budz House (which should tell you much of what you need to know about it), the comedy, which has touches of Friday based on the below trailer, stars Wesley Jonathan as Bud Howard, a slacker who lives with his mother and younger sister in Baldwin Hills, California, and who spends his days getting high and day dreaming about designing his own comic book series.

And further...

His partners in crime are his best buddies; Jpeezy, Ooley and Pretty Tony, a handful of equally unmotivated characters. Their daily ritual of getting high and reading comic books is put on steriods when the gang finds a huge pile of weed. They can't believe their dumb luck! What the foursome learn quickly is that they have unknowingly smoked the stash of the local gang leader and he isn't pleased. As the weed supply in their area hits an unexpected recession, Bud and his friends look to create some kind of replacement stash and in a hilarious turn of events they accidentally create a "super weed" which puts them right in the cross hairs the local gang. At the same time, the local gang leader believes Bud is romancing his girl, and wants him dead. Bud and his friends go on a wild ride in an effort to save their weed, and their lives!

Hey, it could be funny, right? Don't judge a film strictly by its synopsis :)

I learned today that the 76-minute film, directed by Cameron Casey, will be released in theaters THIS Friday, April 13th courtesy of Phase 4 Films; so we may as well add it to our list of "black films" scheduled for release in the month of April, bringing the total to 7 - likely a record in one single month.

Faizon Love, Shon Lange, Aaron Scotti, Emilio Rivera, and Luenell round out the rest of the cast.

According to the film's website, it'll open on about 20 screens across the country this Friday; click HERE to find out if your city is on the list.
